This project aims at highlighting the interactivity of textiles through the inter-relationship of colour, texture, structure and the user with traditional techniques of screen printing and hand-loom weaving. Celebrating how textiles are commonly perceived as the second skin of humans, these surfaces are visibly receptive to touch. The thermochromic pigments used, respond to heat stimulus at an activation temperature of 29°C (body temperature). Layering different types of pigments and the double cloth weave adds the element of surprise, revealing something unique every time it is touched.
